Sausage, Egg and Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet


Note from Sarah: We recently introduced Rachel as part of our EverydayPaleo team.  You can learn more about her on the about page.  

As all of you moms and dads out there can imagine, most of my mornings consist of me rushing around the house getting kids dressed, making lunches and trying to get some food in everyone’s bellies before we all head out of the house for the day.  During the week breakfast normally looks like scrambled eggs and fruit in multiple varieties, because let’s face it, it’s fast and easy. Thankfully everyone in my house likes scrambled eggs so I don’t get many complaints, but when the weekend rolls around I take advantage of the extra time we all have together and try to make something more special and fun and…well…YUMMY!

Sweet Potato Latkes


My boys love Sweet Potato Hash for breakfast but frankly, I’m kind of tired of it, so last weekend I decided to make my pile of freshly grated potatoes into sweet potato pancakes, or latkes if you will. We topped the savory sweet cakes with bacon and fried eggs.  Yum.

Our Food 11/04

Monday morning I made Karina’s sweet potato hash.  I grated two sweet potatoes and cooked with crumbled pork sausage and butter until the sausage was brown and crisp and the potatoes were soft and starting to crisp up.  I seasoned it all with cinnamon and ground ginger.  Lunch that day was quick and easy: sliced ham, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, carrots and celery, and steamed broccoli. Breakfast yesterday and today was the leftover sweet potato hash.  Lunch today was coleslaw: shredded green cabbage, sliced turkey lunch meat, chopped apple, sunflower seeds, lemon juice (fresh squeezed by Rowan), a little mayo, olive oil, and ground black pepper.  We also had hard boiled eggs with tomatoes and avocado.  I made dinner in the Crockpot as usual… I used stew meat, a mix from Trader Joe’s of already chopped turnips, yams, and butternut squash, the chopped up carrot, onion, and celery mix from TJ’s, a can of tomato bisque soup, a little chicken broth, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, a pinch of cayenne, and basil.  About 10 minutes to prep, cooked all day on low, yummy goodness for dinner
